Have the Nebraska Cornhuskers really been slumming it in the Big Ten West? The Nebraska baseball team continues it’s rebuild and more in today’s Husker news.
Will Bolt really seems to be embracing the idea that things needed to change after how the 2023 season wrapped up. The Nebraska Cornhuskers baseball coach not only changed his pitching coach and added a Wichita State phenom of a coach, but he continued changing up his roster on Sunday.
First Bolt added another 2024 commit in pitcher Whit Rhodes. The Kansas prospect who stands at 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds has a fastball that routinely ranged from 88-90 mph this past year. He’s the eighth addition to the Nebraska Cornhuskers 2024 recruiting class.
The Huskers also pulled in a transfer pitcher from their own backyard. Bolt convinced former UNO pitcher Rans Sanders to make the move from Omaha to Lincoln.
Sanders is originally from Grand Island and now he’ll get to stick in the state and hopefully see a regional for the Huskers next season. It’s worth pointing out that the pitcher likely impressed Bolt when UNL faced off against UNO as he had a save against Bolt’s boys this year.
Other Nebraska Cornhuskers news
- The Nebraska football team also continued to try and reshape its future rosters on Sunday with a ton of offers going out to various recruits. One offer that stood out was a preferred walk-on to Blair quarterback Bode Soukup.
- Soukup was among those who camped with Matt Rhule and company over the weekend and is far from the only kid to come out of that camp with a new offer from the Huskers. He’s definitely one of the more intriguing ones considering he’s a talented quarterback that could be joining the team without costing a scholarship.
- Most of Huskers Twitter was preoccupied with an argument over whether or not the Nebraska Cornhuskers are “too good” for the Big Ten West. It started when Omaha World-Herald writer Tom Shatel said the Huskers have been “slumming it” in the division. The Athletic’s Scott Dochterman among others then pointed out that Nebraska’s been pretty bad for a while.
- Lost in the freakout from some Husker Twitter accounts was a big of news. Trev Alberts made comments that certainly seem to hint that non-conference games against teams like Cincinnati and Oklahoma could be a thing of the past for the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the new and improved Big Ten that includes UCLA and USC.
